I'm fine with RPGs, though I prefer eastern RPGs which are slim to none on the PC.
MMOs destroy lives. They are an evil that needs to be abolished.
Had they been released in the late 90s, they would have been great games.
But the first one was released after Half-Life, and it simply could not have competed in gameplay or story. Microsoft made it worse by not releasing it on PC until 2003 when it was laughable by current standards--even by standards in 2001. Halo 2, on xbox in 2004, wasn't released on PC until 2007 when it was even more laughable considering Microsoft decided to require Vista and Dx10 for a game which would have been behind the times in 2002.
When compared to their contemporaries, they just can't compete. When compared to what Microsoft decided to stack up against them when they released them on PC, they're budget titles.
And you can't blame the porting process. They were ported extremely well.
I don't see what keeps people playing MMO's. Is it the immature players who ruin the game? Or maybe the total repetition of endless quests and instances is comforting on some level?

Most new games in general are laughable.

The link speaks the truth, somewhat.
